We are a Residential Care Home for Elderly People, some with
Dementia, on the Clitheroe - Lancashire.
Situated in the attractive village of Clitheroe.
The Clitheroe Home has been extended to provide purpose-built accommodation as a retirement home for elderly people.
Our residents receive 24 hour support and care where needed, and help and encouragement to maintain independence as far as possible. Some of our residents are able to manage their own affairs and some have a relative or professional advisor holding power of attorney. Some of our residents have Dementia such as Alzheimer's disease or other forms of memory loss. Our staffs are trained to provide appropriate care and support for these residents.
Our home has a friendly family atmosphere, is set in delightful Village amenities including pubs and restaurant, which is attractive for many Clitheroe castle visitors.
Most of our residents who receive regular visits of health care professionals enjoy social life and activities, maintain good contact with their families and are happy here.
The Clitheroe Home provides 24-hour care and support to our residents. This includes nutrition, personal hygiene, clothing, sleeping, interests and activities, personal beliefs and many more through the care and love of our staff.
We respect our resident’s needs at all times. That was the reason for the investment of acquiring a company owned wheel chair accessible vehicle which provides the residents with comfortable journeys to the places they want to visit.
We provide permanent residential care for elderly people who need help to live independently. Most of our residents enjoy the social life and activities here, maintain good contact with their families, and are happy here.
On top of permanent care, we also provide short-term respite care, for example where a family member who provides care needs a break or a holiday and also for convalescence or recuperation after a stay in hospital.
Visitors to the home and to residents are welcome at all reasonable times, provided that the resident wishes to see them.
Activities in the home include but not limited to bingo, carpet bowls, drawing and model making, music with exercises and many others. Outside activities include short escorted walks to the local shop, the pub or the riverbank, visits to see various tourist attractions such as cathedrals, Cinema and shopping tours.
Entertainment is regularly staged in the home by outsourced visiting entertainers, which are very popular among residents. Residents are also encouraged to pursue their own interests as far as possible. We provide state of the art home cinema system in the lounge and the library provides good variety of books at The Clitheroe Home.
Residents are encouraged to maintain links with friends, relatives and the community by going out on visits and trips. We encourage friends and relatives to take residents out with them or to their homes.
Staff organize personalized birthday celebrations for the residents. Families and relatives of residents are encouraged to join them at all times. We also organise seasonal celebrations such as Christmas and Halloween parties, which both the residents and their families enjoy a lot. Well-organized cinema events, dramas and theatre are some of the other favorite events of our residents. They also enjoy engaging with nature related activities such as bird watching, visiting wild life trust and various other locations.
The Clitheroe Home operates on an equal opportunity policy hence capable of providing both male and female careers to suit their needs. We continuously check their preferences and strive to meet their personal requirements.
We may display some of the carefully and responsibly selected photographs in our own sites and social media. All resident and staff are informed to let the management know if they opt out not to display their photographs.
